We pick up the car at the ferry landing, put the top down, and head out on North Shore Road.
We stop at Big Bay Town Park where we have the options of walking along the lake or through the woods along the marsh.
It is stunningly beautiful.
By now it is late in the day and the sun is low in the sky.
Time to head back to the cabin to see how the apples in the yard are doing,
admire a few more brightly colored leaves,
consider their bright reflection in the water,
and then join the others on the deck to watch the light in the marsh fade with the day.
